Murdered Victoria woman took care of 3 children and her siblings


The Police are still on the hunt for 36-year-old Clive Wilson who stabbed to death the mother of his three children in the wee hours of Sunday.

Commander of the Police’s ‘C’ Division, Calvin Brutus, told the News Room that ranks are still out looking for the man.

27-year-old Shamaine Frank was at her Victoria Village, East Coast Demerara home when Wilson gained entry to the house at around 03:00hrs by removing three louvre panes from a window.

Relatives told the News Room on Monday that the woman was not just a mother to her three young children, but had also taken up the “mother role” for her five siblings.

Shamaine’s mother – Petal Frank – died in 2017 in Barbados as a result of complications from diabetes. Petal was part of Guyana’s delegation to CARIFESTA XIII.

“She was the one who does all the cooking; she is the person like a mom…even if you upset her she doesn’t hold malice,” an aunt, Doreen Morrison, said.

The aunt said that the couple would always have problems but about a year ago Shamaine moved back to Victoria after living with Wilson at Atlantic Gardens, ECD.

“They would have their problems and they amend and they go again. She would go to station and the last thing I heard was that they were before welfare,” the aunt said.

The night of the incident, Shamaine’s brother – Junior Frank – saw the suspect in their yard and asked him to leave.

Sometime later after the family went to bed, they were awoken by Shamaine’s screams and rushed to her aid.

The brother discovered his sister with a stab wound to her left side breast, and according to the brother, she said it was Wilson who stabbed her.

“He couldn’t do anything so he went out to get a vehicle to take her to the hospital and he saw the police patrol, so they came in and they took her to the hospital,” the aunt.

Frank was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

A post mortem examination is expected to done Wednesday.
